Instructors from the Labor Education Program at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock will give practical leadership training for your local union officers and shop stewards. Our General Counsel, Mike Okun and his friends Mr. and Ms. Pee Wee, will give participants with an understanding of the most important and useful aspects of state labor law. We will also have an experienced Workers’ Compensation lawyer to explain its most important components.

Attendance at the Labor School Game Day & Picnic is open to non-student union members. Call Jeremy at 919-833-6678 for more info.
